Sharing experiences and learning from one another are fundamental goals of the U4Society activities. Also the 'IPT&L' Conference supports staff members of the U4Society to connect and to enhance shared understanding on how teaching in an international classroom and working in an increasingly internationalised academic environment can be improved.
Conducted as a yearly event for teaching staff, programme coordinators and curriculum developers, the IPT&L conference’s 2020 theme is 'Student Engagement through Partnership. Students as partners in Teaching and Learning'. Both IPT&L-alumni and new U4Society colleagues, as well as students are invited to contribute and to take part in the discussions.
General info about the IPT&L programme, its scope and focus can be found on: https://www.u4society.eu/index.php/cluster/institutional-management/165-international-perspectives-in-teaching-and-learning
